Several years ago, Corning embarked on a data transformation to address the limitations of our existing legacy reporting solutions. The strategy aims to optimize our use of data by shifting from batch-oriented, siloed data architectures to more scalable, cloud-based platforms. The approach centers on the Databrick Data Intelligence Platform, which serves as the core data platform. However, a challenge arose in providing the same end-user experience with our legacy solutions - the need for more support for multi-dimensional datasets. After evaluating alternatives, we selected the combination of Databricks and AtScale, which provides seamless integration to deliver multi-dimensional views, OLAP capabilities, and native Excel integration, enhancing data analysis and user experience without requiring calculation time. Learn how we harnessed the power of Databricks and AtScale to improve our time to insight and decision-making process, all while ensuring a seamless user experience.
